• Release the blade clamp release lever.
To remove blade from saw:
• Push down on the blade clamp release lever to its full open position.
• Remove blade.
• Release the blade clamp release lever.
WOOD CUTTING
• Before cutting any type of wood, use clamps or another practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your
body leaves it unstable and may lead to loss of control.
• Place shoe firmly against work to be cut.
• Switch on saw motor before applying pressure.
• Whenever possible, the shoe must be held firmly against the material being cut. This will
prevent the saw from jumping or vibrating and minimize blade breakage.
METAL CUTTING (FIGURE G)
• Use a finer blade for ferrous metals and a coarse blade for non-ferrous materials.
• In thin gauge sheet metals it is best to clamp wood to both sides of sheet. This will
ensure a clean cut without excess vibration or tearing of metal.
• Avoid forcing cutting blade as this reduces blade life and causes costly blade breakage.
• When cutting metal piping, do not cut directly through the pipe as you would saw a
wooden dowel. Instead, cut around the circumference of the pipe to avoid pinching the
blade. Only one section of the blade should be in contact with the pipe.
NOTE: You should spread a thin film of oil or other coolant along the line ahead of the
saw cut for easier operation and longer blade life. For cutting aluminum, kerosene is
preferred.
POCKET CUTTING - WOOD ONLY (FIGURE H)
Pocket cutting is used to cut a hole in a piece of material without cutting from the side.
• Measure the surface area to be cut and mark clearly with a pencil.etc..
• Tilt saw forward and rest front of the shoe on material to be cut.
• Switch the tool on. Grip the handle firmly and raise the back edge of tool until the blade
cuts smoothly into the material. Always be sure blade reaches its complete depth before
starting to cut.
• Allow the blade to come to a complete stop before lifting saw from material.
• When starting each new cut, repeat the above steps.
TREE TRIMMING
• Use a coarse blade when cutting tree limbs. Hold shoe firmly against tree branch. If
possible, cut close to the trunk to minimize movement of the branch.
PROJECT TIPS
• Cut only with sharp blades; they cut cleaner, faster and put less strain on the motor
while cutting.
• When cutting, always ensure that the shoe is resting against the workpiece. This will
improve operator control and minimize vibration.
• For longer blade life, use bi-metal blades. These utilize a carbon steel back welded to
high speed steel teeth making the blade more flexible and less prone to breaking.

MAINTENANCE

Use only mild soap and damp cloth to clean the tool. Never let any liquid get inside the
tool; never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
IMPORTANT: To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
